    The 2025 Forester will be available in Base, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring trim levels starting in spring 2024. The exterior of the Forester showcases a modern and rugged aesthetic, featuring a bold grille, compact LED headlights, and a redesigned Subaru star cluster emblem. The SUV’s design also emphasizes its off-road capability with prominent wheel arches and front, side, and rear underguards.

    The interior of the Forester boasts a prominent multimedia system with an integrated center information display. The cabin features contoured dash elements and textured trim pieces that are designed to withstand daily use without visible damage. The vehicle also offers excellent visibility with strategically designed pillars and generous glass area. Additionally, the Forester comes with rear dark-tint privacy glass as a standard feature.

    The 2025 Forester’s Subaru Global Platform has been improved with a 10% stiffer chassis, resulting in enhanced body rigidity, improved dynamic performance, and a smoother ride. The latest version of the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is standard on all Forester models and offers a wider field of view, updated control software, and an electric brake booster. The SUV also features additional safety features such as Reverse Automatic Braking, Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Emergency Stop Assist.

    In terms of capability and versatility, the Forester combines the best of both worlds with the comfort and efficiency of a car and the capability of a large SUV.

The SUV also offers 8.7 inches of ground clearance and a spacious cargo area with 60:40-split folding rear seatbacks.

    The performance and handling of the 2025 Forester are powered by a 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER engine that delivers 180 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with a Lineartronic CVT for smoother and quieter performance. The Sport and Touring trims also feature manual mode with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for a more engaging driving experience.

    Inside the cabin, the Forester prioritizes passenger comfort with ample head and legroom and supportive front seats. The SUV comes with a quieter cabin achieved through enhanced sound dampening. The climate control system focuses on occupied seats for improved comfort and fuel economy. Additional convenience features include a kick sensor-activated Hands-Free Power Rear Gate, Remote Keyless Access, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and power door locks, windows, and side mirrors. Advanced technology features include the SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM All-Access Radio, and HD Radio.
